is this safe? i would imagine 18mm longer studs to raise some safety issue in addition to strain on the hub since the center mass of the rim is being pushed outward. but what do i know. some insights would be appreciated since i want a flush setup but afraid of potential prolonged issues.
18mm is fine, X5s have been running much larger spacers for years.

We typically do not recommend running larger than a 20mm spacer (regardless of application) without moving to an adapter setup - or preferably, moving to a wheel with a different offset.
